I have some 16x9 video that I've recorded and captured into my computer. I used Adobe Premier to edit all the clips and I've output a 16x9 (1.2 pixel width) DV AVI file. I've burned the DVD and played it in my DVD player (on my 16x9 tv) and everything is fine and dandy. My problem is, my brother wants a copy of the DVD for himself. He does not have a 16x9 tv, so I have to create a DVD with the black bars on top and bottom. To back up a bit and answer the obvious question ("Why not have the DVD add the black bars?")...I am using NeoDVDPlus to create my DVD's. It's not a pro piece of software, but it'll do for right now. The problem with the software (and what I understand), it doesn't allow me to flag the anamorphic (16x9) video so that a DVD player will add the black bars (automatically) in 4x3 mode. I've tried this with my 16x9 DVD and I just can't get the player to add the bars. Back to my issue. I figured by taking the video into Premiere and shrinking the height, I'd be adding the black bars myself. I shrunk the height by 83.3% (which created a letterbox look to the video), then output a 0.9 pixel DV AVI File, then I burned that to the DVD. The letterbox trick worked (i.e. it added the black bars to the video) , but I'm having a BAD interlacing problem. I assume the interlacing got screwed up when I shrunk the video in Premiere???? I've already gone through a few blank DVD's and I really can't afford to play around with different scenarios. I have a DVD-RW drive, but (obviously) the interlacing problems don't show up on the computer so I'm stuck with burning DVD-R's and testing them on my tv. Does anyone have any suggestions???? Thanks p.s. I also assumed that maybe resizing the height to 83.3% might be bad, so I tried an even number and that didn't work either. I've even tried outputting the video as an uncompressed avi with 'Deinterlacing' checked and that still didn't get rid of the interlacing.
